Instrument Calibrates Variety of Indicators

Mitutoyo America Corp. announces the release of the i-Checker, an inspection instrument specially designed to calibrate a variety of indicators, including bore gages, Digimatic indicators, dial indicators, dial test indicators and linear gages.

Mitutoyo America Corporation announces the release of the i-Checker, an inspection instrument specially designed to calibrate a variety of indicators, including bore gages, Digimatic indicators, dial indicators, dial test indicators and linear gages. This version is said to be at least twice as accurate as the previous model, achieving an accuracy level of 0.1 + 0.4L/100 microns. At 10 mm/sec., speed is improved 2.5 times compared to the previous model. 

To reduce operator fatigue, all functions for inspection are in the control box. Measurement position can be easily adjusted via semi- and fully automatic measurement functions, reducing inspection time. Spindle positioning at the inspection points and automatic measurement results enable users to efficiently check digital indicators with data output functions. Users can also create and print simple inspection certificates.

Hardware setup requires only plugging in a USB cable. The updated i-Pak software includes the most recent standards for ASME, ISO and JIS. Previous models can be upgraded with new software and controller.
